of all, what can you tell us ab about the u.s. response? what the united states is now doing? >> you mentioned it briefly, erin. right now, we've learned two navy warships are heading to the coast of libya. both of those are equipped with tomahawk cruise missiles. those are satellite guided and can be programmed to strike a specific target. now, when one got the order, it was just a couple of miles away. the other was a few day's sail. but we know that the u.s. had been conducted drone flights over libya for months. today, we learned that surveillance will be much more focused on trying to find the insurgent cell responsible for this attack. so, between the drone surv surveillance and these two ships, when they get there, that gives the administration some options. >> what's the response on the ground in libya to that, to the fact united states is sending in warships? marines? >> we have not heard a reaction yet from the government here. they have been busy electing a new prime minister amid this chaos and what seems to be a real disaster for the new libya, but i have spoken with ord
their actions. it's never too early for the united states government to condemn attacks on americans and to defend our values. i think it's a terrible course for america to stand in apology for our values, that instead when our grounds are being attacked and being breached, that the first response to the united states must be outraged for the sovereignty of our nation. >> trying to get it straight about this, that was the most terrible statement i've heard in a long time. he never sympathized with the mobs. he certainly never sympathized with someone taking the lives of americans and someone serving our government. his people -- not even his people, regular career service people in cairo without checking with washington simply put out a statement. they said that they could share that they are not part of this absolutely outrageous disrespect. >> i think -- i don't know what mark thinks, but that was to me a little painful and infuriating to watch. because i think mitt romney -- i'm going to give him enough credit for knowing that the president in this context didn't apologize for any
this morning, the president said this. >> the united states condemns in the strongest terms this outrageous and shocking attack. and make no mistake, we will work with the libyan government to bring to justice the killers who attacked our people. >> pelley: christopher stevens is only the sixth u.s. ambassador in american history to be killed by terrorists. it was a shock at the state department where secretary of state hillary clinton spoke earlier. >> today many americans are asking-- indeed, i asked myself-- how could this happen? how could this happen in a country we helped liberate, in a city we helped save from destruction? let me be clear: there is no justification for this. none. violence like this is no way to honor religion or faith and as long as there are those who would take innocent life in the name of god, the world will never know a true and lasting peace. >> pelley: the state department has a tradition of honoring fallen u.s. diplomats by etching their names in marble at headquarters in washington. 236 names are on that wall. four will be added now. when stevens was appoint
